Driving is a serious occupation and requires his full concentration. He cannot do two things at the same time, drive and talk on his cell-phone. There is no room for argument because the facts support the ban on drivers using Cell-phones. Already most civilised countries have passed(or are drafting) laws banning use by drivers. The few states that resist this sane move( due to pressure by fanatics), will be ridiculed by the rest of the world and described as "hick" states.

The other day we nearly hit a child on his bike because he was busy chatting up one of his mates on the blower, instead of watching what he was doing on the road and what the signals were telling him and others to do. Thank the stars and planets, Heather Goldsmith is a very good driver or this kid would have been street pizza.

I say again, cell-phones are a hazard on the roads, so they MUST go.

Jack, you are right. But it takes a long time to get laws passed in the USA and I guess people will continue to use cell phones while driving. But if they travel to foreign places they had better stop because there are laws against it

I looked it up too. The fact that it takes so long to get laws passed in this country shows that there is a serious defect in the system.

I've maintained for years that the problem isn't with Bush & his baddies (although this gang certainly are EVIL) or any, one person or thing, it's with the SYSTEM OF GOVERNMENT ITSELF. The solution is simple but, far from easy, scrap the entire system and start all over again.
